Easy and delicious recipe but I did modify it a wee bit. I skipped the bleu cheese completely. I also used the vinegar and hot sauce in a different way. I added a tablespoon of butter and pressed in two cloves of garlic. I then microwaved that until the butter melted in (30 seconds) and then coated the shredded chicken with that mixture. The celery and carrot went in with the yogurt/mayo mix. Not really sure it made a difference other than the yogurt/mayo remaining a whitish color. Best way sum it up; I would make this again.

My family loved this pasta salad. It's best if you make and then put in the frig overnight.
